Painting in the Garden

Painting in the Garden, watercolor, 4x6" (10x15 cm.) done last year while painting with my grandaughter Natalie outside. Esta acuarela la pinte el ano pasado, mientras pintabamos afuera en el patio con mi nieta Natalie.


A piece of advice to artists: Focus on understanding your object: its shape, volume, color, and relation to its environment. When you "feel" your object, your rendering will have depth and feeling. You will have something more important than your subject, you will have content. When your work takes a life of its own, when it gets out of control, that is a lovely experience! Consejo para los artistas: Concentrense en comprender su sujeto: la forma, el volumen, el color, la relacion con su entorno. Cuando realmente "sientan" su sujeto, vuestra pintura tendra profundidad y sentimiento. Tendran algo mas importante que su sujeto, tendran contenido. Cuando vuestro trabajo toma vida propia, cuando no lo pueden controlar, esa es una experiencia fantastica!
